There is a downside to Greg getting his THCI, now I'm actually going to have to listen to his advice.

Congrats Buddy.

Daisy said THCI or not she will still sneak in and try to steal your food when you're not looking.

Congratulations!

How you get the line out and fishing is personal preference so as long as it works and is easy no one should care but the caster. MSB

Congratulations!
Daisy already knows I'll share with her
Daisy's single minded focus was an inspiration for me and I tried to emulate her during the test

Greg

Congratulations! That is no easy feat. I have been watching some guys work and test for the THCI, it looks tough.

Good luck,

Question Hummmm?

Does that mean he can teach a 'Village Idiot' like me how to properly cast a one hander? Just kidding, but I've been married to my 2-handers so long that I've darned near forgotten how to cast a one-hander beyond 50 feet.

THE SHAME! No kidding, my skills are straight into the crapper.
